Akbar Silver Rupee Mint: Patna (?)
« on: September 22, 2017, 08:22:08 PM »
Akbar Rupee - 11.20 Gm – 23.4 MM 
Its not round coin, the both sides of second picture, say 3 O'clock and 9 O' clock were cut or rubbed by a child on stone.
Check the third picture.

Is this Agra mint Rupee?

Looking forward for the expert help.

Thanks !

Not a child's play but some jeweler rubbed it to check for purity.

I always saw the test marks in the shape of round marks or small cut, but such damage for the first time.
